NOTICE DATE:  August 04, 2021

NOTICE TYPE:  W-A080421-01 Settlements

SHORT DESCRIPTION:  Short Payments for Failure to Make Invoice Payments

INTENDED AUDIENCE: QSE and CRRAH Settlement Personnel

DAY AFFECTED:  Settlement Invoices due for payout on August 04, 2021

LONG DESCRIPTION:  Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) and Congestion Revenue Right Account Holders (CRRAHs) that are owed monies from ERCOT on Settlement Invoices due for payout on August 04, 2021 will notice that the amount of funds transferred is short of the balance payable on the Settlement Invoices.

ERCOT initiates the short payment procedure when a Market Participant fails to make a complete payment for Settlement Invoices. The table below identifies Market Participants that failed to make full payments for Settlement Invoices that were due on August 03, 2021.

In accordance with ERCOT Protocol Section 9.19, ERCOT will draw from available Financial Security provided by short-paying Market Participants. Funds received from Financial Security will be allocated to short paid Invoice Recipients as soon as possible. Furthermore, ERCOT will deduct any applicable ERCOT Administrative fees, payments for Reliability-Must-Run (RMR) services, and the CRR Balancing Account from the amount received, and then reduce payments to all Invoice Recipients owed monies. The reductions will be made on a pro-rata basis of monies owed to each ERCOT creditor to the extent necessary to clear ERCOT's accounts on the payment date to ensure revenue neutrality for ERCOT.

Please note that in addition to the short payment detailed in the table below, the short payment amount that would have been charged to CPS Energy has been reallocated among all other short-paid Invoice Recipients.
